Excellent recipe, especially for seafood lovers! I took this to a backyard BBQ at my sister-in-laws, and it got rave reviews. I've been asked to make it several more times, and everyone loves it. I stirred the seafood sauce and salsa together. The last several times I've made it, I used frozen tiny shrimp instead of the canned and more of them. The frozen have better flavor, are a little bigger and a little higher quality. Also, the crab meat in the packet doesn't have as much incidental shell debris or taste like the can. Great dip! Thanks for posting.
